Who We Are

130214_QUORA_CUTE_N_OLD.jpg.CROP.article568-large

ESMA is the nationally affiliated agency of the Episcopal Church responsible for the development and support of ministries on aging. Since 1964, ESMA has worked to serve the spiritual, psychological and physical needs of older persons and to maximize the use of their unique gifts and talents in continuing contributions to church and society. This ESMANET website is an extension of that commitment, expanding ESMA’s ministry across social, political, and geographical boundaries to improve the quality of life for all.

We believe that aging is God’s gift; not a burden to be endured but a blessing to be enjoyed. We embrace a new paradigm of aging; one of vitality and activity, of spiritual growth, and a commitment to the future through a sharing of knowledge, wisdom, and experience that only comes with time.

Certainly, aging does bring with it special challenges, but it brings special rewards as well. The goal of ESMANET is to provide access to those resources that can enrich these exciting years. We encourage you to explore the possibilities!
